between the two countries. hamas distanced himself from damascus and recently a hamas leader was in turkey and he said to prime minister erbe one pitcher not only the leader of turkey, which are the leader of the muslim world, one of the leaders of the muslim world. this goes to show how much iran's access of resistance, which has included hamas is being weakened. now on to sanctions, as you know, sanctions have had disastrous effects on the iranian economy and in large part, this is due to the rainy government's own mismanagement and dysfunction, specifically the ahmadinejad administration handling of the economy. the sanctions have abetted the economic situation or exacerbated it. all the currency has appreciated by 90% in the last year. middle income iranians are hurting. it's hard to put food on the table. entire countries really suffering because of sanctions for most of the the policies and mismanagement. sanctions have raised the cost on iran's nuke you pursue. we often talk about the sanctions haven't been successful, that we haven't seen any signs that iran is to win back the nucl

, which would have actually indicated their readiness to and things with hamas and that proposal wasn't really pursued. but the fact is it was not pursued. but these two examples are indications that with the right kind of pressures, the behavior will change. as you said, p.j. , there is no doubt that we have succeeded in putting on them sanctions. in 2010 we had to change the dynamic. we got to the point where we were able to work with the rest of the world. the estimates right now are every two months. think about what that means. it means whatever they have in the bank is valued at half as much. the manifestations of this on a society are not hard to come by. we had demonstrations during the most recent ramadan. three weeks ago we had demonstrations again. it was the linchpin of the revolution in 1979. you had the supreme leader for the last two weeks making statements where he says that he describes the sanctions as being in his words, brutal. this is the same gentleman who said sanctions make us stronger. we become more sufficient and we are better off. and suddenly we are talkin

that rebellion centered in the city of hamas and killed, according to the claims of the regimes, 38,000 people in a 27-day campaign in the months of february in 1982. the people felt if they back off, they would be punished because in the 80s, after 82, the next following years, they punishedded them collectively, about 80,000 forcibly disappeared people whose files are still not closed, and thousands and thousands of prisoners of conscious. the syrians felt they have to continue at any cost. when help doesn't come, the idea of defense formed in the movement itself, and so those soldiers defecting from the army started creating small groups to defend, in fact, initially what they called the peacefulness of the revolution, and so they went around buildings because that's where snipers used to shoot peaceful protesters, but as an author said, defense is the first act of war. what happened is that in order to achieve this defense of civilians, the small groups, which increasingly also became joined by civilians who took up arms to defend the towns, families, and suburbs, started, actually, engagi

with regard to hamas, but the area around him, and if he thinks about making compromise what he says is the high likelihood this is going to produce a backlash. he gives an interview with channel 2 in israel where he speaks that he's personally not going back, and you see him burping effigy and demonstrations against him, and he can assume what the consequences are, if, in fact, he takes these steps. it's a chilling effect on him. also, given what you see with the arab awakening, it's made him, perhaps, not for surprising reasons, act more as a populist. on the flip side, with israel, same thing. you're going to do a deal, is it durable? what are they facing after it? it's a time rather than thinking about taking big leaps forward, there's a tendency to think about what are the risks, and not what are the opportunities? i would say it's understandable that both sides have that view, but i would say something else. you know, the status quo is not static. the demographic clock keeps ticking. the currents among palestinians is one person, one vote. one of the big challenges for the admi

several years ago when the hamas leader was killed and the perpetrators were seen. how do you go off the grid now as a spy? how can you go through? just asking for little trade plan. is that so wrong? [laughter] >> again, i would underscore the discipline. trade craft is mostly about discipline and paying attention to detail or whether it's a disguise with those cover story. increasingly your partners. we tend to think of the spy as this unilateral hero and there is still some of that and there always will be. but the growing interdependence of an attack about a race, it is increasingly building alliances and partnerships, trusts and partnerships for you can work with other services and other entities around the world. that is overall a good thing. >> when you are called by director john mclaughlin a genuine american hero, he is not a who is given likely to that kind of thing. so we thank you for joining us as an american hero.
